Learn To Ride At Yorkshire EC

 

 


 

Looking for somewhere to ride...

Alongside our Event Centre and Livery Yard, Yorkshire EC offers it's fantastic facilities to our Riding School providing our riders some of the most well schooled, talented horses in the area. Each with super personalities to assist our Instructors in helping you perfect your skills.

 

You can hone your skills in one of our four riding arenas -

  • Covered All Weather 20mx40m

  • Outdoor 16mx32m 

  • Outdoor 60mx35m

  • Grass Showjumping Paddock with full set of competition showjumps

  • Woodland and Grass Hacking Tracks with xc fences on site

We pride ourselves on teaching riders to ride correctly, using the 'natural aids' of the seat, leg and voice of the rider, not to rely on the reins and kicking on.

 

We offer private lessons, semi-private lessons, keeping numbers small and groups in 'open order' so everyone gets to ride and learn as an individual too. We encourage riders to think and to be creative with their horse.

Progressing riders

Riders of all ages are welcome at Y.E.C however due to Covid-19 we are only accepting riders from 7yrs+

 

Our lessons are tailored to suit each individual rider from a complete beginner to a serious horse riding fanatic! Ensuring that you progress at a speed to suit your confidence, abilities and goals.

We require all new riders, regardless of your ability and experience book a 30 minute Private Assessment Session, so that we can check we match you to suitable horses, Instructors and other riders.

All our beginner and novice level lessons are taught on a 1 - to 1 private basis to provide the rider with the best chance to develop a strong sense of feel for the horses movement and a secure riding position.

Riders who have mastered the art of sitting and rising trot along with controlling their horsey team mate around the arena can have the opportunity to ride in our Semi-Private Sessions

These are tailored to suit so that all riders are of similar ability and goals. 

What to wear

Long trousers, i.e, jodphurs/breeches, jeans, jeggings.
Tops that cover at least the rider's shoulders, ideally long sleeved. 
Footwear must have a low heel 1-2cm and no detailing that would catch on the stirrup irons.
Jodphur boots and half chaps or long riding boots are ideal or wellies to start with.
